Description: 9:00 am - 4:30 pm Please register directly with Spirit Rock to attend this retreat at
This is a dana event, i.e. no registration fee required.
Stressing out trying to settle the mind and "get concentrated?" Tired of trying to force your attention onto a narrow point of breathing and getting frustrated?
We'll explore setting up the mind/heart with some contemplations that allow for natural and easeful settling into samadhi, rather than trying to force attention onto a tight location.
The day will include guided meditation, some reflections and time for Q&A.
There will be a traditional meal offering at lunch time -- please bring some food to share with the monks and other participants.
